A Dozen Ways to Die in the Desert

Coffee and Conversation Lecture: A Dozen Ways to Die in the Desert, a talk by Leonard Marcisz

10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. on April 11, 2017 at AZ Heritage Center at Papago Park, Tempe, AZ

This presentation covers unusual ways in which people end up ten toes in the air in the middle of the Sonoran Desert. It is meant to provide an entertaining education as to how to deal with situations that involve bears, rattlesnakes, Gila monsters, scorpions, mountain lions, Africanized bees, lightning, heat, extreme cold, base jumpers, loaded weapons and the occasional hostile cactus. Survival tips included.
Leonard Marcisz is a former president of the Arizona Historical Society, and former chairman of the board of the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy. He is an expert historian on the McDowell Mountains.
